Hi All, Had another great holiday in France. Unfortunately only 2.5 clear nights in the week and I picked the week containing the longest day! However I managed to capture 2 targets I have wanted to try for a while and here they are. I believe I over processed the Veil but I got excited as I found myself finally understanding some of the actions in photoshop! I am aware there is a lot of "Red" too - something I am working on correcting as I get used to the camera after being modified. Both were using ED80 on HEQ5 with modified Canon 1100D (with Astronomik CLS filter), guided with ASI120MM on ST80. Approximately 20 x 300 second exposures with darks and flats (taken as the sun came up lol - darn these short nights!) I am happy with them anyway :-)
My better half and I are taking the tin snail to a campsite near Argeles Gazoste in the Pyrenees in June. I note that there is a mountain top obsy; Pic du Midi in that region. The website is in French and I wondered if it is possible to do a 'enthusiastic amateur' type visit. I wonder if anybody has visited and can give me an idea of what is on offer? Many thanks.
